More About The Hoyle Historic Homestead

The Hoyle Historic Homestead is Gaston County’s oldest home.  It dates back to circa late 1700’s and is located at 1214 Dallas Stanley Highway in Dallas, NC 28034-0235.

A non-profit educational organization, The Hoyle Historic Homestead, Inc. seeks to restore and protect this home of Peter Hoyle, sometimes spelled Heil, Heyl or Hoyl in old documents.  Hoyle was part of the 18th Century settling of the North Carolina Piedmont by German and Scot-Irish Great Wagon and Wilderness Roads - Hoyle Historic Homestead Imageimmigrants traveling the Great Philadelphia Wagon Road south through the Shenandoah Valley then into the Carolinas. (map courtesy of CSI/ISI.)

The home is important not only for its antiquity, but also for its construction.  The house and outbuildings are on the site where Peiter Heyl was granted a land grant in 1754.  The main house was built during the late 1700’s.  It features rare corner post construction and is the only known remaining structure in North Carolina with this type of construction.  This was also the site of Hoylesville, the first Federal Post Office in present day Gaston County.

The site was purchased by Hoyle Historic Homestead Inc., in 1991 to preserve and restore this very important part of regional history.  In 1993 it was placed on the National Historical Register.
